Call for Papers HICSS 44 - Jan 4-7 Hawaii

We encourage you to submit papers to our track on social networks at the 
Hawaiian International Conference for Systems Science (HICSS) January 
4-7 2011 on the island of Kauai in Hawaii; the deadline is June 15.

The minitrack supports a wide range of papers, from field studies to 
simulations. We are particularly
interested in papers that try new techniques of analysis or focus on new 
domains of study.

Details about the conference venue can be found at
http://www.hicss.hawaii.edu/hicss_44/apahome44.htm

Papers can be uploaded, from now until June 15 at: 
http://www.hicss.hawaii.edu/hicss_44/apahome44.htm, and then clicking
"Author Instructions" on the left frame of the page, and then clicking
on "Submit Initial Manuscript Here".
You will be asked for the track and the the mini-track, shown below as
part of the formal call.

I am the  the contact point for this year's minitrack. If you have any 
questions about the suitability of a paper, please contact me at:

We invite papers that model social networks. We are interested in 
empirical papers that observe or visualize social relations, theoretical 
papers that simulate society through software, and design research that 
addresses social network based software and information systems.

We are particularly open to papers that explore unusual ways of 
modelling social networks: models that demonstrate the influence of 
social systems support on user behaviours, models that consider the 
multiple connections between people, technology, and institutions, 
models that break personal identity into sub-relations, and models that 
examine the emergence of roles, identity, and institutions.

With respect to content, the track is open to analysis of collective 
intelligence web sites, new knowledge creation, collaboration, 
persuasive technology, as well as ad hoc social networks formed in 
response to pressing social needs, e.g. in the area of health and 
wellbeing. Thus the track is open to a wide range of content areas that 
lend themselves to the analysis of relations.
